TSTR Week #71-'So Charming'

Another view.
Inspiration photo.

Hope you all are doing well!  We finally got some relief from the very HOT weather!  We had some thunder storms this morning.  It was actually quite nice to walk outside to put a card in the mailbox!  I have another card today for the challenge at The Shabby Tea Room.  I just wanna reach out and grab that pretty little bracelet from the inspiration photo!  I thought, OK,  I think I have some charms laying around in my stash.  And, I just received some "happy" mail yesterday from PTI and was "happy dancin" when I opened up the musical la la!  Ok...I'll!  Anyways, I distressed the piano and sentiment with antique linen.  I also used antique distress stickles for the pedals, music folder, and legs of the piano. I prettied up some flowers, added a border, pearls, ribbon, and a little piano charm.  Well, off to do my Saturday chores!  Thanks so much for visiting here today!  Take care and have a great weekend, hugs!:-))
